Maybe he feels about electric start Like I do about automatic Quads. They don't belong.

BuckBilly...that comment might just start a heated debate. I wouldnt say any quad doesnt belong. Everyone has there preference.

Yeah, that might start a heated debate , but thats the beauty of FREEDOM OF SPEECH. Would still like to see a big bore with a 5 speed for us REDNECKS.

:wacko: This obivously isnt going to go anywhere with you. Im waisting my time. So ive edited my post so it doesnt keep going. End of discussion. :skeptic:
I had not planned on carrying this topic any farther. You did not waste your time every opinion should have a value wether anyone agrees or not. As long as people keep buying atvs and riding them that is all that counts.

I will not post on this topic again.

you will have to buy a xr400 dirt bike motor and take the side cover and kick start parts out of it to put kick on your 400ex ... its not an easy task and will cost alot to do it ... i have seen 1 that way and it was kool but cost about 1000 to do it ...(had 2 buy a complete xr400)

      The title is for attention. I’m prepping my cylinder head off of an unknown year 400ex to install on my quad. And I’m examining it and there’s literally a Jewish start( Star of David) protruding from the metal on the camshaft side of the head. It’s not imprinted or etched/ engraved. It’s coming out of the metal. DOES ANYONE HAVE INFORMATION ON WHY ITS THERE??? I’ve attached a picture

      So after my 400ex pep up (High comp piston, stage 2 hot cam, and some others), There was a malfunction with the rocker arm jam-nut; guess it wasn't torqued to spec. The rocker arm nut caused the lash to become too out of clearance and I bent a valve on a test rip high in the rpm range. There was no damage to the piston but only that valve, a couple dents in the head, and a completely destroyed valve guide. So I decided to take it upon myself (after watching kenoconnors race porting instructions and reading up on this subject) to port my cylinder head significantly. I had the head decked, cylinder honed and smoothed/polished the dome/exhaust port (intake wasn't polished but dimpled slightly to ensure fuel atomization). So after porting, decking the head, I had all valves and guides replaced/reamed, 5 angle valve job, and recut seats, then I installed xr400 gaskets (for higher compression), carb jets; 42 pilot, 175 or 6 main not sure, dynojet needle, k and n filter with no lid, enlarging of header ports and big gun eco slip on exhaust for a 450r, trx 250r coil (adds 1000+ rpm to limiter), 11:1 85mm piston, stg 2 hc with springs and retainers replaced, and polished rocker arms. I then replaced both sprockets one down in front and stock in rear, o ring chain, and 18in tires. There is a larger list of mods but these were the only ones affecting acceleration/performance. On the dyno, this quad put down 42rwhp and was estimated at 46 to the flywheel. Once again this was 42 to the wheel on the stock bore/carb size/header. All this was done at 16 yrs old. You may not be able to see it in the picture but peak whp was 42 on a mustang dyno.
